Red Carpet Fashion Awards

A very fashionable crowd attended the Metropolitan Opera Premiere of Le Comte Ory in New York City last night.

The event was presented by Yves Saint Laurent, who dressed all the celebrity attendees.

Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen (joint at the hip) opted for very different looks.

Ashley looked fabulous wearing a green stole over her black shift dress, whilst her sister wore a long and loose black polka dot dress with a grey sleeveless coat.

Ashley hair was styled into a chic updo. MK opted for a side-sweeping plait.

The sisters complete their looks wearing black pumps and carrying YSL clutches.

Last night many fashion folk gathered for the announcement of the 2011 CFDA Fashion Awards which was held at Diane von Furstenberg’s studio in New York City.

The Olsen Twins were nominated in the ‘New Talent Award’ categories alongside celebrity favourite Prabal Gurung and Joseph Altuzarra.

As you know I don’t get the Olsen twins and I’m not ashamed to admit that, but on this occasion I love what they are both wearing (very rare).

Ashley looked stunning wearing an off-pink The Row Pre-Fall 2011 suit with gold Manolo Blahnik pumps.

Mary-Kate who usually looks like a bag lady, opted for a black suit and black blouse.

She accessorized with a Prada ‘Rosa Pitone’ and Louis Vuitton Spring 2011 heels.

They look equally good so I can’t pick a favourite. Can you?

Mary-Kate Olsen appears on 3 covers for the Marie Claire US September 2010 issue.

I’m not a fan of multiple covers, because the cover I want is never available in my newsagent.

My favourite is the Pucci cover. Mostly because of the stunning dress, but also because she’s teasing us with a rare smile.

On the other covers which – were shot by Tesh MK wears a military Burberry Prorsum coat and a sequined Gucci dress with feathered sleeves.

The young designer talks to Marie Claire about talks about her fast-paced lifestyle, running a fashion house in New York City, The Row, her passion for clothing, losing her friend Heath Ledger and how she feels about having been a child actor.

Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen brought their own unique style to The Art of Elysium “Bright Lights” with Versus fundraiser on Friday.

I have to admit I kinda like what they are both wearing, which is very rare for me.

Mary-Kate opted for a blue micro mini Proenza Schouler dress with a leopard print cape and Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte ankle boots from the Spring 2010 collection.

The heels are distinctive by the nut bolt heel, the metal toe cap and platform.

A selection of ethnic style bracelets complete the look.

Ashley wore a black lace dress with grey panels with a chocolate brown leather jacket tied to her waist.

She completed her look with Balenciaga heels.

Mary Kate Olsen was spotted at the grand opening celebration of “Otarian: The Planet Most Sustainable Restaurant”.

The actress/fashion designer arrived at the Bleecker Street eatery in New York City sporting a very casual look jeans and a black shirt.

I may not have looked at her twice has she not worn this green Dries Van Noten Spring 2010 floral print jacket.

The jacket is gorgeous.

I’m not usually a fan of Mary-Kate’s shabby chic, but I don’t hate this look.

For once she doesn’t look like she was dragged out of bed.
